The Town of Melbourne Beach, Town of Indialantic, City of Indian Harbour Beach, and the City of Satellite Beach have partnered together in an effort to provide our local community with easier access to the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Beachside Fire Chiefs, with assistance from the Florida Department of Health and Brevard County Emergency Management have established a drive-through Beachside Vaccination Site in Satellite Beach to help complete this mission.
The Paramedics & EMTs at the Vaccination Site are provided by the Satellite Beach, Indialantic, and Melbourne Beach fire departments, who all operate under the medical direction of Dr. John McPherson. Additional staff for the site is provided by the partnering municipalities.
With guidance from the State of Florida, CDC, FDA, and the Florida Department of Health, the Space Coast EMS Medical Director has established the following criteria for administration of the COVID-19 vaccine at the Beachside Vaccination Site.
This eligibility list is valid for the Beachside Vaccination Site only, and individuals that don’t meet the above criteria may be eligible to be vaccinated at a different location.
After careful consideration of potential locations, the Beachside Fire Chiefs have selected and established a drive-through Beachside Vaccination Site located in the parking lot of the David R Schechter Community Center in Satellite Beach.
The entire process usually takes approx. 20-30 minutes to complete from the time of your arrival. This includes your check-in, a screening with a site EMT or Paramedic, the vaccination itself (provided by a site EMT or Paramedic), and a mandatory 15 minute observation period after the vaccination.
Common side effects of the MODERNA vaccine include:
These side effects usually start within a day or two of getting the vaccine. Side effects might affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days.
